Your gaming set-up

Before you go spending all of your “DINERO” setting a Hollywood production in the basement we need to cover a lot of ground. What separates great streamers from just plain old streamers is the setup and the production they put so much effort. So if you want your streaming to look like “Dr.Disrespect” or “Ninja” they you got to understand that these professional streamers earn a lot of money for this and it is not a hobby even though it might have started as one.

If you have the budget to create this operation from the beginning then go right ahead. But do not go into a spending spree thinking you are going to become the next big thing. If you are planning to stream on Twitch just know that there are roughly about 2.2 million live broadcasters. Big competition and 27,000 are Twitch Partners and me sharing this information with you is to inform you how big the competition is out there for you. Buying expensive equipment for your new business might be checked in the loss statement.

We decided to help you reach your goal as a professional streamer and building your dream studio with quality equipment at the right price.

Mic.

Blue Yeti USB Microphone (Blackout)

This microphone is great but keep in mind you are going to need a pop filter and acoustic panels. This mic absorbs all noise around, if you are thinking of doing ASMR, this would be it. For better use you might consider buying a boom bar.

Rode NT-USB USB Microphone

A direct Mic. this should only cover the voice of the speaker and not the surrounding noise. If you are planning on creating great audio content in your streams practice with the yeti at first and then transfer to RODE.

For stream decks this is the XL. The XL as you can see from the video it has a lot of potential as you can personalize the deck to your likings and adding your lighting, mic volume, commercial breaks, etc….You can do all of this with all of the decks but the bigger the better.

This is the regular stream deck, it comes with 15 personalized buttons. It is great when you want to add voice overs, clips, funny noise and etcetera…

It has arrived even for iPhone users, now if own a IOS 12.2 or higher you can download the stream deck mobile and adjust your settings there and control your panel from it. We believe that you will look like you are texting on your phone while streaming and completely inappropriate but if you find a way to do it smoothly, go right ahead.

Lighting

El l gato offers some great key lighting for you that you can attach to your stream deck and control the dimmer from there as well.
